    That's not Warhawk, that's gonna be Conquesthawk and he will be awesome. I don't know if it's true but I heard if a friend's baby is named after you that gives honorary Godparent status, even if it's not official; I would definitely want Grayven as Godparent, that's Awakening coming and who knows how many "this is how you murder your enemies" presents.

    I'm happy for Diana, I hope J'onn manages to overcome his affliction as well, I think he's the one that's suffering more, really; Diana at least was in her island and with her family, even if she was pushing people away. J'onn is alone on dead planet, stuck in an unnatural form, practically mute even if there's no one to talk to; that's just too damn sad.

    No to the idea that they are themselves colorless, but yes to the idea that their colors can be changed by giving them different energies.

    In the War of Light, the Star Sapphires could convert lanterns into new star sapphires, which included changing the color of their rings.

    When Kyle recharged off of the Cosmic Cube in JLA/Avengers, his ring became cosmic cube colored.

    In Blackest Night, before a black ring blows up by being emotionally charged, they change color to match the emotion overloading them.

    Post Flashpoint, Kyle's ring was changed to white, and the Lightsmith's beams changed the color of lanterns hit by them.

    Moments like this are the reason Grayven is my favourite character.

    This is what happens when you use mind control powers to make people self-determinate. They start demanding promotions.

    Bah! Bah, I say! She shouldn't have had to apologize for anything. The only thing the Justice Lords did wrong was try to expand into other universes.

    Authoritarian Leagues really need to stick to their own universe. It always bites them in the ass when they don't.

    I imagine Divine Awakening wouldn’t work on Rex since he’s half-Thanagarian, unless Renegade gains access to ancient Thanagarian mystical knowledge (even then it would probably be a long-term research project).
    Earth-50 Thanagarians probably worshipped the Old Ones like in Earth-12; it would be interesting to see if there’s a parallel between the latter and the Seven Devils that Zoat and the comics use.

    Has Renegade tried reverse-engineering Nth Metal too? I wonder if it would be conducive to making New God tech (which I also wonder about in regards to mithril and oricalchum). He hasn’t interacted with the Thanagarian Empire, which could be a fun parallel to Paragon in the future; maybe Renegade would ally with the Seven Devil cultists as a tool to influence the Empire.

    On a tangential note, while Earth still has its problems here, at least the Lords Universe (probably) won’t have to worry about Darkseid.

    Mentioned when Awakening Mr Tawney, the process isn't limited to species, so much as soul structures. The Earth-based arcane energies seem to produce soul structures comparable with DeSaads Divine Awakening research.

    So if Rex is Earth (orbit) born and raised, his soul should develop from from the same arcane energies. Which is discounting him getting a reincarnated soul, in which case, it would almost certainly have been human in a past life.



    ... of course, all this is discounting that Thanagarians (along with Kryptonians & Rannians) are descendants of pre-flood Atlantis colonists in some DC continuities. So I have no idea if that would play a part.

    Grayven mentioned that he couldn't Awaken Kon when he was making him full Kryptonian, so I think the species has to be Earth native. He also didn't Awaken MM which supports the idea.

    I also asked Mr. Zoat a while ago whether Renegade could Awaken Genomorphs, which have alien DNA but were created on Earth (and while individually they may have weak souls, the Genomorph Entire would be very interesting if Awakened), but he said it wasn't possible, if I remember correctly.
    This just made me think of Genomorphs encountering Tyranids (Zoat's profile name probably played a part)- does anyone know if someone's written a fic with that premise? Not a lot of good Tyranid crossover fanfiction out there (though I have read Hive Daughter and a couple others).

    Edit: I also want to say I really enjoy your 40k/Star Wars Sorcerer fic Breadnaught, so thanks for that.

    Isn't that a theory rather than something that was ever established?

    Anyway, in New Earth continuity, thanks to Brightest Day, it was established that Thanagar was colonized by refugees from Hawkworld, populated by humans from Earth and animal people (lion-manes, Lizarkons, Manhawks) with copious Nth Metal.

    Humans mated with Manhawks, and that opened the portal to Thanagar, so Thanagarians would be human/manhawk hybrids.

    Superman, as usual, gets no respect or redemption in this story. Ever. Any version of Superman.

    I think Mr Zoat just doesn't like Superman or something.

    You know, it's actually kind of satisfying that when I post typos and stuff Zoat actually corrects them. It's like when you see that one kitchen tile that's misaligned from the others and you know it's gonna bother you every time you see it, but in this case I can point it out to the guy who controls all the kitchen tiles and he actually fixes it.


    Zoat, you have no idea how much typos bother me. Thank you for being a good sport about it, even when I'm an arse and accidentally post redundant stuff at you.

    I think it's more Paul/Grayven, personally. His treatment of Kon pissed both off, and their perspective is colored by that. And since the story is from their POV, that's what we see.

    [Briefly considers just copying and pasting his response to last time this came up]

    The Renegade hasn't had any contact with Superman 50 since dosing his with gold kryptonite. Neither he nor you know anything about what he's thinking or doing now, or what he's been doing since the Renegade left. So I have no idea how you can draw any conclusions about how I feel about him.
    I remember spotting a spelling error in Fallout: Equestria, posting it and being told that the author had no interest in making corrections. Irritated me a bit.

    Some things I didn't change. 'pooosibly' was entirely intentional.

    Hey, your story mate. If it's intentional, it's intentional, I'm happy just to be able to point it out in case it isn't

    Once Wonder Woman showed up, all re-empowered and redeemed, I was going to say that. But there didn't seem to be any point in bothering.

    You people have terrible memories.

    Its probably how the Batman of the future universe IS the Justice lords verse, also this superman was brainwashed by Darkseid made a general "son" and then ordered to gleefully commit genocide on dozens of worlds before being sent to earth, where he recovered his original memories and then returned to murder Darkseid.

    So Grayven knows this superman turns into a bad guy if left alone. He also knows this superman has killed a gigaton of people, then killed Darkseid in revenge and finally returned to earth where he eventually became earths Darkseid...

    Nope, I don't see any problems. Kal is probably carrying a nasty co pilot in his soul, so the best that can be done with him is to keep him as a powerless farm owner.
